Abstract

Objective. To summarize the causes and treatment of inguinal lymphatic leakage, and to provide references for clinical treatment of inguinal lymphatic leakage. Methods. The literatures on the inguinal lymphatic leakage in recent years were reviewed. The main research contents and results of each literature were summarized, and the causes and treatment progress were summarized. Results. There is no uniform standard for the diagnosis of inguinal lymphadenopathy and there are no standardized guidelines for treatment, but there are many reported treatments. Conclusion. The occurrence of lymph leak in the groin area is inevitable, and attention must be paid to prevention. The treatment is difficult, and both the doctor and the patient must be fully prepared before surgery. Treatment should be proactive, flexible selection according to the situation, and a combination of multiple treatment methods can achieve better treatment results.
